For me, for most people, if you don't write it - you lose it.
1. Ask the Lord to guide you to some book of the Bible He wants you to be studying for the next few days or weeks
2. Ask the Author - God - to show you something that you can immediately put to work in your life that day.
3. Read a few verses. Read them two or three times, then start writing. Start writing what God is saying in these verses, but in your own words; in fresh non-religious language. Restate it; write it to the Lord.
Then write to the Lord what you're going to do differently today because of what you read. Make sure that you've written the verses and the date down, and then pray through what you've just said and what He said to you. Then tomorrow repeat the process and the next day.
